BAR | RESTAURANT | CLUB DOWNTOWN
Father’s Office Downtown is our 2nd location from our Father’s Office
concept. Our original location on Little Lonsdale St.

Father’s Office is based on prohibition Americana in the 1920’s,
when the consumption of alcohol was disallowed. Speakeasies became
the place to be and underground bootleg liquor (and the debauchery that
follows) thrived.

Expect a sprawling 350-person late night venue serving Father’s Office
all-Americana cuisine that has been loved by so many.

Head downstairs to party the night away where you can mingle late into
the night with a cocktail in hand. With a 7am Liquor License, you can
party your weekends away!

    Our server was so fun and lovely, made the experience great! Drinks were great, good happy hour value. Dinner was nice - the cheese on the parma was slightly rubbery but chips were delish

    Would have been all 5 stars but numerous people did not receive their order of food. Staff were very apologetic and helpful with refunding and still providing replacements however. Overall loved it and would go again!

    This was a casual corporate drinks session for a group of about 20 of us. Omar, the manager, offered outstanding customer service and made sure everything was on point. With our office being so close to this venue it is definitely one I will keep booking for most of our events.

    Had a great night. The food was excellent the staff were great and the place had a really upbeat atmosphere. Looked like lots of young people go there to start their night with some food and drinks before heading out for the night

    Slow service (one plate came after everyone else and finished theirs, other meals came out at 50 minutes after sitting down, and we had to go around the 60 to 70 minute mark for the theatre), noisy atmosphere (it won't kill them to turn down the music so people can hear each other), and fairly average food and menu. This place doesn't know if it wants to be a restaurant, bar, or a nightclub, and realistically such venues can only be two of those things for it to work.

    I've been to both Father's Office and Father's Office Downtown previously for happy hour. This was my first visit booking a table, and was for a group of seven. The food is always good, and didn't disappoint. The staff are always courteous. The music was too loud - could barely hold a conversation. The music was louder than on my previous visit. We go out to eat so we can interact with family and friends, not to listen to music. The main disappointment was the food service. It was 30 minutes between the first main meal brought to the table and the last. Completely amateurish. This is acceptable when you're ordering bar snacks. When you're ordering dinner, everyone at the table should be receiving their meals at approximately the same time.

    The set menus are great value for money and the food was really nice, although our steaks were very over cooked. Two items from our set menu were forgotten, but we were promptly reimbursed for them when we brought the issue to the staff’s attention.
